The Villa Hotel
The Pavilion at The Villa, Wrea Green is a new function marquee. At 25 metres by 15, the Pavilion can easily accommodate 300 for a dinner, 250+ for a dinner dance and more for an informal party. Due to the venue’s proximity to the closest neighbour (80 metres), The Villa originally had a planning application for a marquee on its grounds approved on the basis that it played no music. Obviously this would’ve been unfeasible for the venue due to the type of functions being planned.
Following a demo installation of a Sound Ceiling at the site, the local EHO was invited to see the effect the noise had on its nearest neighbour. Following a successful demonstration, supported by sound level tests and a testimonial from the neighbour, who had previously opposed the installation, The Villa’s license was subsequently amended allowing the marquee to play amplified music on the basis that it was done through the Sound Ceiling.
